From the Publisher
Marking the 75th anniversary of its original publication, Vintage
Canada is proud to publish the first Canadian edition ever of the
1932 classic Brave New World with an original
introduction by Margaret Atwood.
Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the
ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering,
brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs, all its members are
happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone in feeling discontent.
Harbouring an unnatural desire for solitude, and a perverse
distaste for the pleasure of compulsory promiscuity, Bernard has an
ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few
remaining Savage Reservations, where the old, imperfect life still
continues, may be the cure for his distress.… Huxley's ingenious
fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is
considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.
